JOKE

Or is it?

 

An eighteenth-century sailor was shipwrecked. After drifting on a raft for several days, he sighted land. There were not people to be seen as he crawled up the beach, but there was a gallows, with the bodies of men, women and children hanging from it.

 

“Thank God!” said the sailor. “At least I know I’m in a Christian country!”
